History

The IING was established in 1954 and has a proud history of activities and achievements. The latest being, some years ago, the IING being selected as the best Institute on a National basis

In 2004 the Council and its activities was restructured with the talented assistance of Justice van Pletzen of the then IBC, as well as Caryn Marchant of Proudly Insurance.

Financial support was obtained from the Insurance Industry and its service providers. The following were our much appreciated initial Sponsors/Business Partners:

From the Industry:

Santam, Mutual & Federal, AIG, MUAi, APBCO, Legacy, Insure Group, Sharemax, Natsure, First Link, Cre8SA and Alexander Forbes and others

From the suppliers to the Industry:

Tracker, PG Glass, Glassfit and others..

In 2007 the Council, after much deliberation, decided to again restructure the main goal and activity of the IING to that of Education and Training but without reducing it’s commitment to other activities being social etc.

2008 brought about the notion of having a dual approach to membership and actually, to some extent, returning to the initial practice of individual membership. This dual approach is the retention of corporate membership but with the inclusion of individual membership to be able to build a data base of individual members for Training and Educational purposes. The revision and update of the existing data base was approached together with the new idea of individual membership.

This new membership approach, in conjunction with retained Sponsors/Partners as well as service providers, is considered to be the main sources of financial support of the IING.


The Insurance Institute of Northern Gauteng was established in 1954 and maintained a proud history until recession and financial instability during the past few years caused a regression of the Institute as well.

This year saw the rebirth of the Institute and the activities.

The targeted market of the IING is the entire Insurance Industry as well as service providers and suppliers to the Insurance market within the area of jurisdiction of the IING as indicated in its Constitution.

Continuing the new decade, our Insurance Industry requires a dramatically different approach to training and skills development, to support the strategic vision of the Insurance Institute of Northern Gauteng, and to assist our members effectively manage the consequences of unprecedented change.  As a result, the transition from past practices to new ones will require a very different vision.
